problem #1

Oct 071997


  • Manual transmission
  • miles
Was moving out of parking area at 10mph. Driver started stretching when seat cracked in half. Took to dealer 7 informed it was already cracked before driver broke it. Seat swings loosely on anchors. Consumer states that the portion of the seat that cracked in half was a plastic or fiberglass part that connected to the seat to the bolts on the floor, the seatback consequently rocked back and forth freely, and the driver in a relaxed position, would be almost reclined, therefore having to pull on the steering wheel to maintain a normal, upright driving posture.
